- ICESCO, morocco, think tank summit
The Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO), brought me to Rabat, Morocco, to address their first Islamic Think Tank Summit organized by their newly established Strategic Foresight Center.
Prior to the Summit, I met with Dr. Salim M. AlMalik (picture), Director-General of ICESCO. We discussed cooperation for developing think tanks in the Islamic world.
The Millennium Project has established Nodes in nine Islamic countries: Egypt (1997), Iran (1997), Kuwait (2002), Azerbaijan (2006), Dubai (2007), Turkey (2008), Malaysia (2009 & 2012), Pakistan (2014), and Tunisia (2016).
The second day I spoke to the Future Forum: Youth Edition also organized by Strategic Foresight Center about intergenerational issues. During the two conferences there were discussions about creating Millennium Project Nodes in Morocco and the Ivory Coast.
Video from the first day is available (my talk begins at 4 hours 49 minutes, and 49 seconds into the video): https://www.facebook.com/ICESCO.En/videos/2257684537731608
